Gear Review: Elemental Herbs Sport SPF 22 Tinted

Get all-day protection without the greasy white tint with this chemical-free sunscreen.

For her: Elemental Herbs Sport SPF 22 Tinted is chemical-free—and provided our tester with an attractive glow, thanks to the hint of tint. “My face didn’t look pasty and white, as with most full-protection sunscreens,” she reports. The nongreasy cream provided all-day protection—a good thing, since at this price, re-applications would get expensive. $19; 3 oz.; elementalherbs.com

For him: Dermatone SPF 36 Z-cote. From deserts to peaks, our testers agree: effective, no gimmicks. $6; 1 oz.; dermatone.com
